Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

It's pretty obvious that Ratatouille set up a new standard for animation; following suit, Michael Giacchino's score was among the best of 2007. Jerry Seinfeld's animation debut, DreamWorks' Bee Movie, pales a bit in comparison, and so does Rupert Gregson-Williams's score, which is competent but also struggles to establish an identity of its own. The first track, "Graduation," oddly sounds a little like the theme for a '60s TV Western, an impression confirmed by bits of "Honex"--at times you feel as if you're listening to the imaginary score for a remake of Bonanza. It's obvious Gregson-Williams (not to be confused with his brother Harry, an animation specialist who's also scored the likes of The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe) has soaked up the classics: "Assault on Honey Farms" has moments of James Bond-esque grandeur, while "Honey Round Up" pulls off the funky, horn-laden vibe Bond sometimes prefers; elsewhere, "Ken" nods in the direction of Nino Rota. Dialogue cues might have helped lighten up the mood, but there are none. The CD is rounded up by two pop tracks, the Archies' "Sugar Sugar" and Sheryl Crow's faithful cover of the Beatles' "Here Comes the Sun. " --Elisabeth Vincentelli

5.0 out of 5 stars Second Columbia album was huge success January 13, 2005
Format:Audio CD
After some earlier successes, Andy Williams joined Columbia in 1962 and recorded two albums for them that year - Danny Boy and Moon River, which helped to set his career going in the direction he wanted it.

Following encouraging sales of Andy's first Columbia album (Danny boy), his second, Moon River, brought together a collection of movie themes and made the top three in the American album charts. Curiously, the title track was never released as a single although it became his signature song. (In the UK, the song became a number one hit for Danny Williams - no relation).

Apart from the title track, the album contains Andy's excellent interpretations of such classics as A summer place, Maria, Never on Sunday, As time goes by, It might as well be spring, Three coins in the fountain and others.

With the Danny Boy and Moon River albums, Andy left nobody in any doubt that he was a ballad singer with no interest in recording up-tempo songs. That he was able to build a career as a balladeer despite changing musical fashions is a measure of the man's talent.

5.0 out of 5 stars AN ALMOST PERFECT LP March 28, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Also available in a 2LPS on 1 cd along with DANNY BOY(ANDY's first LP with COLUMBIA)MOONRIVER is simply an offer that ANDY WILLIAMS fans can resist.If you forget MARIA(never a favorite of mine),this comes close as being a perfect LP.All of these songs are perfectly suited for his voice that can be compared to a melting hot chocolate stimulating your mouth after an afternoon of skying with friends.One of the most satisfying aspect in the decline of rock,is that singer with the talent of ANDY get the chance to belt it out all over again.This will make you want to hear more from him...

5.0 out of 5 stars The Good Times February 15, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Outstanding! Andy Williams performs like nobody else can. It forever reminds me of the "good old days" and how life, movies and music went hand-in-hand. I treasure it dearly and guarantee it will be one of your most prized possessions. I've listened to it for 40 years and I'm still overwhelmed by the beautiful songs and the wonderful memories they bring to life.
It is simply too beautiful for words.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album! September 12, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I really LOVE this recording! It's got the most INCREDIBLE versions of some amazing classics! I purchased it specifically for the cut of "A Summer Place" to be used as pre-show music in a production I was directing and producing in Hollywood, but every cut on it is truly wonderful! I also received it in record time, allowing us to use it for the show! Thanks, Amazon!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent score! October 18, 2008
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Film scores (as opposed to "song soundtracks") tend to get a bad rap, and the reasons baffle me a bit. To each his or her own, I suppose, but film scoring is an art unto itself, and I really appreciate the composers who can write one that not only supports the movie, but stands on its own away from the film.

The score for "Bee Movie" does just that. As Mark and Glenn noted, it's a worthy addition to anyone's film score collection, and it's a big feather in Rupert Gregson-Williams' hat.

If you're not into film scores and just want the songs, you can find "Sugar Sugar" at Amazon's MP3 store or iTunes for a buck. And if you want "Here Comes the Sun," do yourself a favor: forget Crow's lackluster cover and get the original. You'll have to buy a CD ("Abbey Road" or "1") but not only will you get a much better performance of the song, you'll get a lot of other great music along with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a fantastic soundtrack! September 20, 2008
Format:Audio CD
This is a fantastic soundtrack. I have a degree in music and hear a lot of film soundtracks. And I have to say that this music is some of the "freshest" I have heard since John Barry's score to "Raise the Titanic."

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Andy Williams goes Hollywood! December 8, 2004
Format:Audio CD
My LP copy of this album is a hand-me-down. It was also a hand-me-down when my late grandparents owned it. My uncle got it at a garage sale with many other record albums in late 1979. Here,Andy Williams,although he never had a film career,goes Hollywood with twelve awesome movie themes from films theatrically released in the 40's,50's and 60's. This album was originally released in 1962 in stereo and mono. My copy was stereo(just how I like it). I first heard LOVE IS A MANY SPLENDORED THING on the GREASE movie soundtrack. It was recorded by an unknown artist(there were unknown voices but no words). A SUMMER PLACE was a hit in 1960 for Percy Faith. MARIA is so beautiful. I also love the "la-la-la-la's" on NEVER ON SUNDAY. The title track,co-written by Johnny Mercer and the late Henry Mancini is from 1961's BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY's starring the late Audrey Hepburn. All the other songs are good. Like THE ANDY WILLIAMS CHRISTMAS ALBUM,Williams sports a tuxedo in the cover photo.

5.0 out of 5 stars Our Song from 1964 September 10, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This has a special meaning for my wife and I as the title song was a song we picked as our song in 1964. It and the other recording are everything I expected.
